A New Android Who "Can Do Japanese Sign Language"

Accompanying text: Toshiba has developed a lifelike communication android that can move its arms and hands smoothly and use Japanese sign language. The android is a prototype that the company will continue to develop towards achieving a service robot able to assist people in the fields of welfare and healthcare. The android will be showcased at CEATEC JAPAN 2014, which will be held from October 7 to 11.


Lifelike? Smoothly? Use Japanese Sign Language? Really? (The JSL is horrible, barely understandable...) Despite not having a face, ASIMO's sign language is a little better...
